Hi! Wow, 2 posts in a week! And me getting things done, too! Amazing! So, on Sunday I set out to cutting all the pieces for my tree skirt. Then began sewing everything together.
As you can see out my window, we received lots of the white stuff overnight and it was still snowing all day Sunday. Perfect time to be inside sewing away. Oh and we ended up with about 10″ of snow. Yuk! But I did get the quilt top all together.
I just love how all the fabrics look together. I was getting excited for the finished product. I had worked on it all day and by the end of the day, I had all the quilt layers pinned together and ready for cutting and sewing.
I cut, sewed, poked my fingers a few times, turned it outside right, sewed the opening closed and tied off all of the squares. And here is the finished product. I am so happy with how it turned out.
And I am finally backstitching mermaid. My least favorite part of cross stitching is the backstitching. It is taking forever. But she does have a beautiful face 🙂
So now I have to get back to more decorating and getting my Christmas cards addressed! What are you up to these busy December days?
